It was greatly appreciated
Hello. I would like to thank you all for the care, support and compassion you all showed and for the lovely service you gave for my husband Dennis’ funeral on 11th August. He had a grand “send off” with so many to say their goodbyes, and the sun shone too. John Banks gave a lovely service and myself and my family would like to express our thanks for your help on such a sad day in our lives.Regards,
To everyone at Penrose,
Thank you will never be enough to express our gratitude for all that you have done for our family over the past few weeks. You showed humility, compassion and kindness at a time we really needed it and for this we will always be grateful.
With all our love and best wishes,
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the kindness you have shown over the past few weeks. From the very moment we met you we knew you were the perfect person to provide Dad with the care he truly deserved. Your empathy and support has meant a lot to us and we will never forget everything you have done for us. You are a credit to Penrose.
Nathan, Brendan,Many kind thanks for the service today and your exemplary conduct and utmost dignity at every occasion at Penrose. Please pass the family’s sincere thanks to Jeremy and his colleagues who were fantastic and so mindful of our Hindu traditions – I wasn’t able to catch them at the end of the day but hoping you could relay back to them.

Dear Jeremy and Nathan,
We wanted to thank you so much for arranging mum’s funeral. You took charge of everything with such kindness, tact and diplomacy and we felt so lucky to have you supporting us all the way.

We cannot thank you enough for helping to give our darling mum such a beautiful send off. I hope you know how much we appreciate all you have done.

Good morning Jeremy
A big thank you to you and your team for yesterday, the day went like clockwork (apart from my father in law following the wrong limousine out of the crematorium which raised a few laughs at the wake)
To all at Penrose Funerals,
Just to let you know how much your kindness means, a huge thanks, you done us all proud. I cannot speak highly enough of you all. On behalf of ‘Doris Davis’ (service 30th Jan 2020 @ 1.40pm) we thank you from our hearts.

Thank you Brendon and Kevin for your sympathy, kindness and compassion when you took Cliff into Penrose’ care.

Thank you Jeremy for completing the Order of Service and for leading the funeral in such a respectful, dignified and professional manner. We cannot express how much this meant to us as a family.
Thank you Edward and Paul for your support, respect and kindness on the day of the funeral. Edward, you offered your coat to our mum as she looked cold and Paul, you were so kind talking about the dogs outside our house before we left, the dogs were a big part of Cliff and are so important to the family, so this gave us comfort knowing that they had been recognised.
We have no hesitation in recommending your services to our family and friends.
All of you made a very sad day more bearable. We sincerely THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts,
Nathan, Brendon and all at Penrose,

We can’t thank you enough for looking after Avril/mum/nan. Your kindness and respect will never be forgotten.
We appreciate the time you took to explain everything and the respect that was shown to Avril.
Thank you…Kind regards
Penrose fully deserve a 5 star rating. this is the 2nd Funeral they have directed for us.
Once again they were absolutely brilliant. On meeting with Nathan we all felt that he really listened to our needs and also advised us on absolutely everything we needed to know but never tried to sell anything to us unlike a previous experience we have had at a couple of other directors which is the last thing you need at a time of loss. Nathan then kept us so well informed right up until the day of the funeral calling most days to check that everything was in order and to see how our arrangements were coming along. Nothing was too much to ask from ideas we had about the funeral to the amount of visits to our Mother from family members. On the day of the funeral we felt that the care and empathy was there from Jeremy and Nathan and all of the staff.
Jeremy asked us how we wanted to do things and even brought our flowers back for us. I would highly recommend Penrose and thank them for the smooth running of everything at such a devastating time.
We would definitely use them again as they offer everything you would want service, dignity and value for money.
Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts all the team at Penrose.
I just want to say a huge thank you for allowing me to say hello and goodbye to my birth mother Pat W. I never gave up searching for her and really appreciate your help and understanding in allowing me to finish this so beautifully
Thank you for your sensitive care and support at a very difficult time
Dear Jeremy and Nathan,
We would just like to thank you for the exemplary way you conducted Bill’s funeral on September 28th at Basildon Crematorium. Every aspect was just as we hoped it would be. You were always understanding and re-assuring.
A few words of thanks to all who helped me with the loss of my husband. He had a wonderful send-off thanks to you and the Royal Artillery Association. I was very grateful for all the help and respect given to myself and to his daughter. Thank you all once again
Thank you so much for the way you dealt with my husband Dennis’ funeral. It was done with great dignity and respect and for your kindness!
Nathan, Jeremy and the Penrose Team,
My wife, myself and our family would like to say a heartfelt thank you for the wonderful service we received from Penrose. We could not have asked for kinder or more helpful people and certainly everyone who attended David’s funeral gave high praise indeed to the whole event.
I cannot recommend Penrose highly enough on the amazing service provided and wish you all the very best in the future.
To Jeremy, Nathan and all the staff at Penrose

To all the staff at Penrose Funeral Services,
Thank you all so much for being so helpful and kind at a very difficult time. Keep up the excellent, friendly service.
I would like, through this letter, to express my sincerest gratitude for the outstanding service given by you and your team at Penrose in ensuring that my late mother’s final journey was treated with such dignity.
Penrose was the first company I had contacted and from the moment of first coming to see you I had a feeling that everything was going to work out. Well, I was right. From our initial meeting, collecting my mother from the hospital and taking her into your care, to the viewing of my mother in your chapel of rest, ensuring that a rare piece of music I had selected for the service became available, through to the immaculate directing of the funeral itself, you were professional, courteous and sympathetic in the most exemplary manner.
My mother’s passing has been a traumatic experience and the way in which the funeral arrangements were handled, making everything as easy as possible was a very big help in removing so many.worries and concerns.
Thank you so very much to you and everyone at Penrose,
I just want to say thank you on behalf of myself and my sisters for my father’s funeral. Thanks to you and your staff for helping us through this hard time, you made us feel very comfortable with our roles at the funeral and your professional services we received. We would highly recommend your services to anyone that may be in need.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the caring way you helped me plan my beautiful mum’s funeral. As it is a time of terrible loss and sadness I cannot think of anyone else who could have made it more bearable. Thank you so much and God Bless you.
…and I wish to thank both Jeremy and Nathan for your help and courteousness throughout
Dear Nathan and Jeremy, Thank you so much for all your help. You are truly a great family business!

To Nathan and all at Penrose, I just wanted to thank you for the sensitivity, care and respect you showed my Grannie yesterday. She looked amazing and I’m sure you caught a glimpse of her incredible 100 years as my dad spoke at the grave-side. You don’t have an easy job but I hope you know how grateful people are that you do it so well.
Your manner and conduct was gentle, considerate and supportive, thank you for all you did to make yesterday so special. You have been given the gifting and attitude needed to help bring peace and blessing during difficult circumstances. May you know God’s peace and blessing as you continue to serve others in this way, Thank you
